Crafting Focus

From Albion Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Characters with Premium Status active passively earn 10,000 Focus points over 24-hour periods--even while offline--up to a maximum of 30,000 points, after which the character stops gaining Focus. Focus is used for various things, such as 'watering' crops, 'nurturing' animals, and increasing the resource return rate (RRR) when crafting. In addition, using focus when crafting items with quality--such as weapons and armor--provides a small crafting quality bonus.

Some zones provide an increased base RRR when crafting. For example, crafting cloth in a Royal City will provide you with a base RRR of 15.2%, but crafting it in Lymhurst will give you a base RRR of 36.7%. With a base RRR of 36.7%, if you were to use 100 cotton to craft simple cloth, then you would receive 100 simple cloth and around 37 cotton, whereas if you had a base RRR of 15.2%, you will only receive around 15 cotton. This incentivizes crafters to craft items in cities with increased RRR and to craft with focus in order to save on material costs, thus allowing them to craft the item for much less and make more profit. Crafting in Outlands hideouts also provide increasing RRR bonuses depending on how close the zone is to the center.

Crafting at the black zone gives 44% resource return rate with focus.
